DOHA: The Ministry of Municipality and Environment’s agricultural quarantine offices have inspected 5,577 imported shipments weighing 101,373 tonnes, from various types of imported agricultural consignments, such as plants and production inputs products at all customs ports in the country in February.
The quarantine offices destroyed 85 shipments that weigh over 30 tonnes for violating the agricultural quarantine law and for certain damages.
The agricultural quarantine is the first line of defence for protection from agricultural infections. The preventive procedure aims to protect the country’s agricultural wealth from foreign-originated pests.
It also requires that all plants, agricultural products, and any other materials shall be subject to phytosanitary regulations for its procedures and to ensure that other agricultural production inputs are in conformity with the conditions and specifications.
